Lot #424. Margaux 1959

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 NM.
". . . a deep garnet core with tawny rim. The beautifully defined nose is lovely with fragrant redcurrant and raspberry fruit, bay leaf, dried blood and a hint of pottery wheel. The palate is medium-bodied, showing more decay that the previous bottle I tasted three years ago, with some mushroom/underbrush elements dominating the entry and Provencal herbs developing with aeration. Yet the finish has class and elegance that is difficult to ignore, the silkiness of the tannins nigh irresistible . . . . it is still a beautiful old dame." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Nov 2010
Notes: 1 top shoulder, 1 high shoulder, corroded and scuffed capsules, 1 lightly wrinkled capsule, heavily scuffed and heavily bin soiled labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,700
